Keane Cup FT

Avondale 3-2 Midleton

Goalscorers : Alex smith & John Keane

Abit of a head scratcher how this young magpies side didnt get a result out of this game, magpies did start slowly and gave away 2 soft goals with no pressure , to create a uphill battle.

The magpies did get themselves back in the game before half time with a really composed finish from Alex Smith his 1st for the magpies.

Midleton changed the system and introduced Kyle Mc Carthy at HT and both changes had a very positive effect for the 2nd half with the magpies on the front foot for large periods and really should have levelled through Christian Daly only for the Avondale stopper to deny him, on 55min a real sucker punch when ex magpie Dave Stack hit a cross from the sideline but deceived everyone and hit the back post and in to give Avondale another 2 goal cushion , Midleton never dropped their heads and stepped up the pace again with the introduction of John Keane and Evan O Meara, and it was Keane who reduced the deficit to one again from a Cotter delivery. Evan O Meara came agonising close with a stunning header off the bar, Brian Coleman was next to come close but a magnificent save from the Avondale keeper once again. Up stepped Matt Lambe and he came within a whisker of levelling, Avondale were hanging on now and Midleton had one last chance, before the final whistle, Dylan O Riordan chested down at the edge of the box and fired a volley just wide of the post to Avondales relief and give them their 1st group win .

Hard luck lads , excellent 2nd half performance ⚫⚪

Next up is away to college Corinthians on Thursday night in the final group game where the magpies will be looking for a result to progress.
